The Address Downtown Dubai hotel fire disrupts New Years Eve celebrations

The Address Downtown caught fire at about 9.30pm Dubai time, with the flames appearing to reach from the ground floor up another 40-or-so storeys of the 63 floor building. Those who escaped described how people climbed over each other in their rush to escape the burning building. However, the authorities decided to still go ahead with the fireworks display planned at the Burj Khalifa, just a few hundred feet from the burning hotel.
